About Installation
Installation of Clarion marine audio components requires
experience with a variety of mechanical and electrical
procedures. Even though this manual provides general
installation and operation instructions for your new Clarion
marine audio remote control panel, it does not show the exact
methods which may be required for your particular installation.
If you do not have the required knowledge and experience to
successfully complete the installation, we strongly recommend
consulting an authorized Clarion marine audio dealer about
professional installation options.
1. INTRODUCTION
The M301RC-RET is a waterproof remote control panel which
allows operation of the Clarion XMD3-RET head unit from a
remote location. The XMD3-RET unit is an AM/FM CD player
with controls for an optional CD changer and an optional
Sirius Satellite Radio receiver.
A maximum of two M301RC-RET units may be used with a
single XMD3-RET (using an optional M101RYC-RET
adapter). The M301RC-RET can be connected to your boat’s
illumination circuit, backlighting the panel in low-light condi
tions.
What is included
• Remote control panel (1)
• One mounting bracket and four 7mm hex nuts (1 set)
• Owner’s Manual / Installation Guide (1)
Note: An 24’ extension DIN cable is available separately
(P/N M101RXC-RET).

4. INSTALLATION AND WIRING
1. Before Starting
3. Installing the Unit
Selecting the Location
Location of the panel varies.
Read these instructions and the following precautions.
Precautions
• This unit is exclusively for boats with a negative ground,
12V power supply.
• Do not open the case. There are no user-serviceable parts
inside. If you require assistance, consult your Marine Audio
dealer or an authorized Clarion service center.
• Use a soft, dry cloth to gently clean the control panel after
installation. Never use a rough cloth, thinner, benzene,
alcohol, or other solvent. The screen surface can be
scratched - do not rub when cleaning.
2. Package Contents
! Remote Control Panel unit (1)
! One mounting bracket and four 7mm hex nuts (1 set)
! Owner’s Manual / Installation Guide (1)
Before you begin installation of the remote control panel,
verify that you have sufficient clearance in the desired
location. Note that 2.5 inches of mounting depth (behind the
mounting surface) is required to avoid cable damage. A flat
surface is required in order to ensure a watertight seal when
installation is complete.
WARNING!
Before cutting any panel, ALWAYS
ensure that there is sufficient clearance
behind the panel, and that no wire
harnesses, fuel lines, moving linkages,
or any other critical components are
exposed to damage by your choice of
location. NEVER risk damage to the hull
while cutting your opening.
Prepare the boat for installation by carefully removing interior
trim panels as necessary. Route wire harnesses away from
sharp edges, and ensure that no harnesses will be pinched
or pierced during reassembly.

1.
Determine the mounting location is a flat surface with
sufficient rear clearance (2.5”) and access. Ensure
that the installation can be successfully completed
before continuing! If the cable is not long enough, a
24’ extension is available - P/N M101RXC-RET.
2.
The remote control panel requires a 2” (51mm) diameter
round hole. Cut the hole and insert the remote control
panel as shown.
3. The mounting bracket is scored with “break lines’ to allow
use with panels of different thicknesses. Determine if the
bracket needs to be shortened, and remove the appropriate number of breakaway segments using a pair of pliers.
Each segment is 1/4” long.

Insert the remote control panel into the opening. Make
sure that the gasket behind the remote control panel face
seats completely against the mounting surface.
5.
Position the bracket onto the rear of the remote control
panel, sliding the two threaded studs on the rear of the
panel through the two holes in the mounting bracket (as
shown below). Tighten the 7mm hex nuts onto the
bracket, again ensuring that the gasket seals tightly to
the front of the mounting surface. Avoid pinching the
cable.
Wiring Connections
Take the following precautions before wiring your system.
•
Disconnect the negative battery terminal before making any wiring
connections.
•
Be particularly careful where you route wires and cables. Keep
them away from the engine, exhaust system, etc. Heat may
damage wires. Sharp edges can pierce wire insulation and cable
jackets, causing short circuits, damage to the craft, blown fuses,
and system failure.
•
If any fuse should blow, make sure all connections are correct
and no wires are damaged before replacing the fuse. Always use
fuses that are the same amperage value as the original. When
replacing a fuse, never let the battery side touch any metal part or
any other wire.
Wiring
1. Connecting the ground lead.
Connect a wire to one of
the mounting studs on the
rear of the unit, using a #8
ring terminal (not supplied). Connect this wire to
the boat’s negative (-)
ground.

2. Connecting the illumination lead.
The illumination circuit of the M301RC-RET operates with
a 12V(+) input. Wire with a .250 female insulated spade
terminal (not supplied), and connect the illumination
terminal on the rear of the panel to a 0.5A in-line fuse (not
supplied). Connect the other side of the fuse to an
illumination circuit of the boat.
3. Connecting the cables.
Connect the DIN cable from the XMD3-RET AM/FM/CD
to the remote(s). Route it carefully to avoid moving parts.
